Trend Micro Incorporated, the leader in cloud security, announces its CEO and co-founder Eva Chen has been recognized as one of the most influential women in the cybersecurity industry.
Eva Chen sits alongside many of the industry's most respected and well-known figures on Cyber Defense Magazine's Top 100 Women in Cybersecurity for 2020 list, which acknowledges those who've displayed outstanding leadership skills and cybersecurity expertise over the past year.
"It's an honor to be placed in such illustrious company among so many other strong women in security," said Eva Chen, chief executive officer and co-founder of Trend Micro. "In reality, there are many more than 100 outstanding women working in our industry today, and it's my mission to ensure we encourage even more women to consider careers in cybersecurity going forward. I'm pleased to accept this recognition on behalf of our more than 6,700 immensely talented and passionate Trend Micro employees who have helped this company continually anticipate trends and redefine the market."
Chen's latest award comes just weeks after she was named on CRN's Top 100 Executives list for 2020, which recognizes individuals who have "demonstrated exemplary leadership and innovative ideas."
Trend Micro's executive leadership has driven numerous projects to further the company's technology leadership over the past year, including the acquisition of Cloud Conformity to provide cloud security posture management capabilities, and the launch of the company's unified security platform Trend Micro Cloud One™, which offers protection across workload, container, file object storage, serverless and application, and network environments.
Eva Chen has also remained dedicated to Trend Micro's philanthropic initiatives, including a new Girls in Tech partnership to help reduce the gender gap in cybersecurity, and has been vocal in her advocacy of greater diversity — both within the industry and society at large.
She remains as committed as ever to steering Trend Micro and its customers through a period of unprecedented global uncertainty and heightened cybersecurity risk.
